Reporting Obligation of Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 2013
In compliance with Bankruptcy Rule 2013(a), the Clerk of Court maintains a public record listing fees awarded by the Court to trustees and attorneys, accountants, appraisers, auctioneers and other professionals employed by trustees, and to examiners. Pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 2013(b), a summary report of the record is also available.
Accessing the Professional Fees Awarded Reports
Registered users of the courts' case management and electronic case files system ("CM/ECF") or PACER can generate a current record of fees awarded through Reports > Professional Fees Applied For/Awarded. A summary report of the record can be generated through Reports > Professional Fees Awarded. Alternatively, the reports can be viewed by the public without charge on public computer terminals located in the Clerk's Office.
The Court endeavors to ensure the accuracy of these records, however, the data for these reports comes from CM/ECF and is limited by the methods used to docket pleadings and papers. In addition, professionals are listed by the name(s) used in the CM/ECF docketing process. This may result in separate entries for lawyers within the same law firm, for auctioneers under a personal as well as trade name, and similar anomalies.
